4 /5

- The John X Merriman is a powerful wine that rewards aging.
- In its youth the wine is worth decanting and expresses cassis, black currant and dark fruits complemented with cigar tobacco and sour cherrynotes.
- As the wine ages and its fine grained tannins soften a softer more savoury palate develops revealing wonderful drinkabilityand tertiary complexity.
